Pilot Power 2CT Info

just a heads up for you speed demons. . .
The new pilot power 2CT tire uses the original pilot power compound in the center of the tire(expect the same mileage, not better), and uses a softer compound on the outer edges four you track riders/canyon carver types. The info i really wanted to pass on was that these tires are only W-rated for speeds up to 168MPH!!! Do not throw these tires on your litre bike and top it out. . .these tires were not designed for those speeds. Thank you for your time. JET

Sounds like a nice set of tires for the track bike.
How do they run in price compared to the regular powers?

they can. thats what speed ratings are about. they are capable of X speed for so long, but if you exceed the speed, it's your own risk.

they prolly won't explode........they'll just come apart at the seams.

they fill a void in the tire market for those who like to ride their street bike at the track without changing tires every time. I have not checked into pricing yet, I just wanted to pass on the info. If the knowledge i share helps 1 person than i have done my job. JET

that's awesome info. I was thinking of getting some and doing about 175 or 190 on my bike but now that I know I'll have to keep it under the speed rating.



175 or 190 mph. yeah right, I'm lucky if I get to do 140 on a clear straight away. I worry about some car or truck popping out on these country roads.

They're a little more expensive, but only $10.00 or $15.00 each. We've been keeping them in stock. I've got a set on my 600RR and am REALLY liking them.

FWIW, All Pilot Powers, BT014's and Qualifiers are "W" rated (168 MPH).
The M3's and Pirelli Diablo and Diablo Corsa are only "Z" rated (149 MPH)
